    Herotel (aka BreedeNet, and a couple of other rural independents) is a ripoff. 8MB radio/microwave link is R816/month on a 24month CONTRACT! Steer clear, far away.

    Unable to connect to any Apple-hosted "cloud services" over CISP

    Poke @PBCool and also paste your CISP support ticket reference number. Also, which link provider do you use? It helps that you follow their/CISP's official procedures too. No, I cannot diagnose not solve your problem, I am a CISP on FrogFoot consumer.

    Solar questions

    Vacuumtubes tend to boil the water, which is not desired. You'll have to restrict them, manually , with shadecloth or similar. You best alternative is solar heating setup, one that circulates the heated water through the geysers. Else, heatpump/exchangers is also an option.
